A close-up visual perspective reveals the difficulties and dangers endured by birds engaged in seasonal migration. Except for the narration, human roles are minimal. Several types of light aircraft accompany various bird species in flight, creating the sensation of flying with the flock. Spectacular scenery along the travel routes belies the harsh and sometimes brutal reality of the extended flights for the migrating birds. When not flying, birds exhibit their hunting or gathering techniques. Complicated patterns of social behavior ensure the survival of the group. The inclusion of multiple bird species within a continuing backdrop of inspiring landscapes captures and illuminates the grandeur of the migratory instinct.
